Please please tell them to test editor with windows 10 i have done everything i possibly could to get it to work smoothly, about to go back to 7

ok, i will inform my colleagues.
But I also have to say that some of them already use Windows 10 and don't have any problems.

Please try to do the usual things:
- update your drivers, especially the one for your graphics card
- re install the GIANTS Editor and delete its configuration folder in between
(C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\GIANTS Editor 6.0.4)
- check if you have a dedicated or an onboard graphics card (the Editor only works with a real/dedicated graphics card)

I have already posted a working solution to this issue. Wish people would review prior post, before posting a problem.
Here's the solution that has worked for me.
But, Emil is correct , you must have a dedicated graphics card installed. Have tested on an intel with onboard graphics and an AMD A10 with onboard graphics. Didn't work with either one. Have not done any testing of 32 bit, only x64 systems.

i got that message after using it in compatibility, reinstalled it for the 3rd time is working ok for now, trying it thanks for the help. i should've dual booted 10 with 7 instead of complete installation.

Ron and others. I have posted this to other windows forums. Regarding dual boot of 7 & 10. The only way I found that works. You must have 7 on it's own drive and 10 on it's own drive. Not a partition. Then you must install 10 while logged into 7. Then install 10 to it's own drive. When you then do a restart. you will be automatically given the option, at boot, to load 7 or 10. The reason for this is the new drive format windows 10 uses, which is not compatible with 7. I have 2 computers. The one at work is an intel i7 and the one at home is an AMD a10. Both 64x. And works on both.
